Man they sure seem to be demanding more and more of the shrinking tax dollars coming in?

Sorry, we need to use our money to take care of Texans.

New York always thinks they are the center of the United States and the rest of the country exists to support them.

Can't remember the last New Yorker I met who wasn't a class one, self righteous ******bag.
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill

After we come through this, I am ready for New York to be the center of their own universe and not a part of ours. Until then we help them out as we hold our nose.

Back when I was single i did find NY gals to be easy and a lot of fun. So there is that redeeming quality.

No. Cuomo wants others state's PPE's and ventilators then when they're done they'd give back what they don't use. By then we could all be NY.

Watching Fla's infection numbers are going to be interesting and likely sad.

Maybe, heck even probably, but I would not be surprised if that Texas sun and humidity punches CV in the face and we get improving numbers.

It's the balls he has to ask fly over Americans to sacrifice for his state when he could've bought 15k ventilator's in '15 for his state.

My neighbor is an army nurse. He leaves tomorrow with a team from Ft Hood to NYC. They are setting up a trauma center to act as an annex of the city hospitals so they can better handle Corona patients. It is essentially the same setup they used in Iraq. He has no idea when he is going to get back.

Told his kids last night.


Sure would rather keep the Ft Hood boys here.

NEW York is old, its losing population, even before CV. Texas has more people and a greater GDP. If it wasn't for old money and the media it would be just another 'old yesterday's news', Rust-Belt state. And they are taxed to death and still leveraged to the hilt. That state is a dump. So have a little room in your heart for the less fortunate.

Yea. There is going to be a lot of hindsight for all of the governments from city to the feds. A friend of mine put it wisely tonight when he said that all of our rapid response and disaster prep is centered around natural causes. And we are very good at those. We were clearly not ready for this.

Met a couple NYer's around the pool bar last summer in a resort in Mexico. After about 2 mins I could not get away from them fast enough. If all of NY is populated with people like that I would fully support Nuking it from Orbit. Obnoxious *******s.

Yup. Over 50% of US cases are there.

Apparently being in an incredibly dense major city with thousands of international visitors isn't the best thing during a pandemic.

If Texas reaches out to help anyone I hope it is our Cajun neighbors.

A perception that's amplified by having most of the TV networks headquartered there.

Like with Hurricane Sandy. It wasn't that big of a storm, by Gulf Coast standards, but because it hit NYC, the center of the universe, it got the nickname Superstorm Sandy.

Could we just shut the border and not allow anyone in or out till they resolve their Pandemic?

People are going to start fleeing and spreading the virus if they aren't already.

Can they shut off NYC at least and leave all these people on the island instead of spreading the virus everywhere?

A friend of ours in real estate had a NY guy call and sign a lease today in Frisco, site unseen, already heading down.

The governor of Florida is saying that any visitors from NY/NJ will face a two week quarantine upon arrival in our state.

And the only national mention I've seen of this was a piece saying that the policy might be unconstitutional and he would face lawsuits.

Never been to New York and have no interest in ever changing that. However, New Yorkers also pay taxes and currently have far more COVID-19 cases than the rest of the country combined. NY hogging a bigger share of assets at this point of the problem makes sense, and thinking otherwise is just selfish, uncaring, and irresponsible.

In other words, sounds typical of more than a few posters on TexAgs forums

Just listen more closely. I heard on national news about the 2-week quarantine along with some citizen interviews about what they thought of it, but your post is the first I'd heard of any constitutional issues. Meaning I've apparently missed some coverage too. Unless you saw it on social media, which is the main source of fake news, and thus possibly true but most likely of any source to be fabricated BS.
